If We Controlled Your Remote… 4/27/12

Ugh, another week of being sick. So not fun. But it’s been another great week of new TV (albeit a little slow) and tonight is no exception. There’s some great stuff on, so let’s get to it!

Jenny’s Choice

Last week’s Nikita was fantastic. Nikita herself went up against an old foe, and for a bit, it looked like he was going to get the best of her. Then Michael gave himself up to save her, and just when the two of them were fighting him for their lives, Sean and Alex rushed in. Sean got the ultimate revenge for his mother’s death by shooting him dead. The guy was scary because he had zero adgenda except for revenge…to make Nikita hurt as much as she’d made him hurt. All of it served to make Nikita think that she was too dark and too much like Percy – enjoying the pain and suffering she inflicts upon others – to be a good person. The scene at the end with Michael and Nikita was fantastic for Mikita shippers. And once again, Nikita laid down the law with Percy, telling him she was coming for him.

On tonight’s episode, “Shadow Walker,” Nikita convinces a reluctant Birkhoff to use 20 million dollars of his own money in a plan to bankrupt Percy and Division, but when Percy ends up stealing Birkhoff’s entire life savings, Birkhoff and Nikita clash. Team Nikita has one last chance to hit Percy again, but Birkhoff is arrested trying to regain his millions and Nikita realizes she must break him out of jail before Division gets to him. Michael and Alex go after Birkhoff’s stolen money while Nikita goes to save Birkhoff.

Don’t miss it tonight on The CW at 8/7c. Learn where to find episodes online of Nikita @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’m also going to be watching/DVRing The Finder, CSI: NY, Fairly Legal, Grimm, Melissa & Tye, & Blue Bloods.

Megan’s Choice

CSI: NY has always been one of my favorites in the whole franchise. I love the team on this show. Last episode centered around a gamer and the cheating that was going on. The team did their best to expose the truth, and as usual, they kicked some serious ass. I love Danny and Lindsay together and the chemistry that is brought across on the show. It’s been on a long time, but that doesn’t mean its still not as fabulous as the first season – if not way better.

On tonight’s episode, “Sláinte,” a wave of brutality threatens a small New York City community when a body found is dismember and strategically left out on four street corners. Molly Burnett (Days of Our Lives) guest stars.

See if they can stop the wave before it drowns society on CBS at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of CSI: NY @ Clicker.

I’ll also be watching/DRVing Blue Bloods, Grimm, Supernatural, Fairly Legal, and The Finder.

Kyle’s Choice

Last week’s Fringe gave us a jump into the future, where The Observers ruled Earth. Fringe agents Etta and Simon resurrected an amber-suspended Walter and helped him remember where the rest of his team was located. When he led them to where Peter was suspended, Simon sacrificed himself to free Peter. Meanwhile, Walter found William Bell’s suspended body and sliced off the hand, saying that’s all they needed. At the end of the episode, we discovered that Etta was really Henrietta, Olivia and Peter’s daughter.

This was such a fun and amazing episode – I’d watch a spin-off just with Fringe agents Etta and Simon! Also, Walter’s ramblings of Star Wars and The Prisoner quotes were hilarious. While I guessed that Etta was Peter’s daughter, the reveal was still great. From the ads, it looks like we return to modern times tonight. It will be interesting to see how they work what we saw in the future into the rest of the season. There are only 3 episodes left to the season, but FOX announced yesterday that there will be a fifth and final season of 13 episodes! Huzzah!

In tonight’s episode, “World’s Apart,” the Fringe teams from both worlds are united by a common cause; new developments are linked to the children from the Cortexiphan experiments.

See it tonight on FOX at 9/8c. Learn where to find episodes online of Fringe @ Clicker.

Tonight, I’ll also be recording/watching Undercover Boss, Grimm, The Finder, Supernatural, Fairly Legal, In Plain Sight, Magic City, and The Ricky Gervais Show.

Lisa’s Choice

Last week on In Plain Sight, Mary’s father returned, and it did not bring good news. His return marked his arrest, and it put both Mary’s sister Brandi and their mom Jinx in some serious danger. Mary had to decide who she could trust, and that was in all sincerity no easy task. As the series finale creeps closer, Mary is going to be tested even more, and she’s going to need to find strength she didn’t know she had.

Tonight, on “Sacrificial Lamb,” while under FBI surveillance, Mary must lose her tail and find her father in order to clear her name.

Watch USA at 10/9c and savor every last moment of this thrilling show before the series finale. Learn where to find episodes online of In Plain Sight @ Clicker.

I am also watching Fairly Legal and Who Do You Think You Are? tonight!
